The Night After Christmas
Tuas thenlght after Christmas and
nU throUgh the house
Not a crmtuN was stirring except
ing a mouse
Tho stockings were flung In haste
over the chair
For hopes of St Ntcholas were no
longer there
Tb children were reitiessly tossing
In bed
For the pie and the candy were heavy
ns had
Vhiln mammJe In her kerchief and
I in my gown
Had just made up our minds that we
would not lie down
When out on the lawn tht4O rose
such a clatter
I sprang from my chair to see wIllt
was the matter
Away to the window I wont wIth a
Flung open the shutter and throw UI
the sash
The moon on the breast of the nell
fallen snow
Gave the luster of noonday to obJJCs
When what to my long anxious eyes
should appear
But a horse and a slcgh boUt old
l3hlnel and queer
With 31 atlaold driver eo solemn and
keen at n gJ1C It must ba Dr
draw In my had and was turning
When upstairs came the doctor with
scarcely a sound
110 wore a f1ck overcoat made long
And the board on Ws chin was white
with the snow
Hp spoke a few words andwent
straight to 1111 work
He felt all the pulses then turned
with a jerk
And laying his finger aside 01 his
With n nod of his head to thooMrn
ney he goes
A spoonful or aU maam tt you have
It handy
No nuts and no candy no raisins
no pie
Thcs tender young stomachs can
not well digest
All the aw3tB that they got toys and
books are the best
But I know my advice wU1 not find
ninny friends I
For the custom of Christmas the
ether way tends
The fathers and mothers and Santa
Claus too
Axe exceedingly blind WoU 2 good
night to you
And I heard him exclaim as ho drOve
out of sight
These feastdngs and candlee make
doctors bills right
